Daniel Shehan was born around 1800 in County Cork Ireland. He worked on a ship that brought himn to America. When he landed, he later went to Burke Co. North Carolina. At that time there was the Good Family that lived there also. It was Edward Good and Lucretia Matthews. They had an only daughter named Parbanor. Parbanor had a Cherokee boyfriend. But in the course of time, what ever the circumstance, we don't know of, her boyfriend disappeared leaving Parbanor pregnant. When Daniel Shehan came to Burke Co., N.C. evidently this was a possibility of a lifetime to save the family name for Mr and Mrs. Good. Mr. Edward Good offered Daniel or David Shehan $500 in gold to marry his daughter and to save the family name. The baby that was born was named William Monroe Shehan. He was born Sept. 20, 1825 and married Sally Ann Jones around Rutherford, North Carolina. Daniel and Parbanor had 10 other children later. James Shehan, Daisy, Edward, Emily, Rebecca, Eli, Martha, Mary, Sara, Elizabeth.
William Monroe Shehan, being half cherokee, had 12 children: John Robert Shehan, James Earvin Shehan, who married Nancy Pardon, Daniel Alexander Shehan, Samuel Jones Shehan, William Winfield Shehan, Margaret Shehan (Sheehan), Nathan Shehan, Pelina shehan, Little Henry or Lett Shehan, Carabell or Carrie Shehan and Doctor Curtis Shehan who was known as Doc
